ORAD Arrives At Seneca

Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology in Canada has become the

first institution to bring ORAD video technology into the classroom.

Originally designed for the Israeli military's virtual reality training,

ORAD places real-time people into a virtual set. The ORAD system removes

the bluescreen behind a person and replaces it with a computer-generated

environment. Located at the Seneca York campus, students in the television

broadcasting, 3D arts and advertising programs will have the opportunity to

participate in hands-on training in virtual set technology. With digital

editing systems Discreet Logic Edit, Pro-Tools Digital Audio and a new

fiber optic video network to pass uncompressed video throughout the campus,

Seneca offers students one of the most up-to-date production facilities in

Toronto. The ORAD system is currently used by newscasters in Canada and the

States. Derek Elliott, professor, Digital Media Arts said, "ORAD has the

capabilities and industry presence we want our students trained with to be

job-ready graduates."
